Flying Geese Quilt


Back in March I bought these colourful fabrics with the plan to sew a Flying Geese-Quilt.
But it stuck because of other projects like the raised bedPua, the Niffler and others. Now I finally found the time to start.
First I sew these colour/white mixed quaters
After that I arranged the quaters to get a rainbow effect
The back of the quilt is again a duvet cover from Ikea. I mostly find there duvet covers, that matches the color and the pattern of my quilts, very well. And they're made from pure cotton.

The pattern was created with the free software of Pattern Jam.
Because the software is limited with 16 rows and columns, I split the pattern in 4 parts and put them togehter while sewing.

Kitty helped a lot and was really exhausted after that 😉

Aviator Hat

Hi Folks,

finally I found back my inner peace for crocheting. Today I've got a funny hat for you. My good friend - who got the Eire Quilt too - asked me if I could crochet this aviator hat for him.
Sorry, I don't know the original source :-(

If you can imagine the hat had to be a littler bigger than for a cute toddler 😉
But I love funny challenges and I'm impressed about people who are self confident enough to wear such showy hats. So quick I went to work and here's what I came up with
He is really happy with this hat. Now it can get colder. ⛄

Would you wear such a hat too?
